Poetry is central to Ren Hang’s work, both in word and images. Although he considered his poetry and photography to be entirely separate, both deal predominately with sexuality, identity and the body, as well as love, longing and death. Pay a final tribute to the artist, today's the final day to visit his exhibition at Foam.
